Summary: Marcus was apparently of the same opinion. I, obviously, am not.
I use bugzilla as a tool to keep track of my "todo" list. If there is a
place where I suspect a certain behaviour is broken, I open a bug report
(knowing it will only be me who will have to "confirm" it... :-), and
leave it "unconfirmed".
I think asking us (wine developers) to move at the same pace Alexandre
is releasing is unrealistic. The idea is to make bugzilla more friendly
to us, not less.
I see why user-opened bugs could benefit from this policy, but
developers opened bugs should probably not. Of all the BiDi related
bugs, I think 1235 is the only place where a bug MAY have disappeared
